European Desk

The goal of the European Desk is to disseminate information about how the different criminal justice systems in Europe operate. A coordination of the criminal justices systems in Europe is made complicated on the inter-state level by the substantive procedural differences between the various national systems. The OICJS has extensive experience navigating these complicated cases.

Asian and Middle East Desk

With a focus on education, professional development and leadership, the Asian and Middle East Desk promotes best practices and tailored solutions to help investigate and solve criminal cases in Asia and the Middle East, where criminal justice systems have undergone significant reform.

Center for Advanced Policing

The Center for Advanced Policing promotes best policing practices and solutions, providing seminars and conferences on contemporary challenges in law enforcement and security. With a focus on leadership, the Center for Advanced Policing provides education on challenges that police departments will face, such as "dark web" investigations. The Center works with other nations to develop protocols to guide professional development and training needs for the 21st century police executive and has published broad research on a variety of subjects.


International Student Affairs

The International Student Affairs Desk acts as a liaison between current and prospective international students and the colleges and schools and various departments at the University to ensure student success. The OICJS helps guide students through the application process and collecting documentation needed to complete an application. The office works directly with the international offices on campus to assist students with visa and I-20 procedures, as well as any challenges in navigating immigration regulations. In addition, the OICJS assists with the coordination of University cultural activities.

A major component of international student affairs is providing academic advising for international students enrolled in specialized programs within the Office of International Criminal Justice and Security. It is vital to maintain continuous contact with students throughout their studies to ensure they are meeting and exceeding program expectations. The OICJS provides regular reports on student progress and coordinates delegation visits in order to advance current international partnerships and establish new ones.

Administration and Management

From its state of the art headquarters, OICJS holds regular video conferencing with clients around the world. The staff also organizes site visits and meetings around the world. In addition, translation services are also offered when needed.
